COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Originally brewed at Belhaven for Innis & Gunn. Production moved to Wellpark - date unknown.
NOTE: This is the same beer as the Oak Aged Beer Rum Finish. According to Innis & Gunn "they are the same beer, the process changed slightly so we changed the name. But the recipe is the same."

Has also been seen at 6.8% (Rum Aged)
Ingredients: Golden Promise and Crystal malt; Phoenix hops.
We are delighted to present this unique limited bottling of Innis & Gunn finished in oak barrels which previously contained navy rum. Maturation in special oak barrels imparts Navy rums with the sweet, spicy character for which they are renowned. We have long wondered what flavours might be imparted to our beer by finishing it in these same barrels and earlier this year we decided to find out. We brewed a special batch of Innis & Gunn beer and matured it in oak for 60 days. Every single drop spent half of that time in American oak barrels before being refilled into selected navy rum barrels to finish the lengthy maturation. Once the beer had absorbed the unique character the barrels were emptied, the beer blended and then maturation continued for a further 47 days until all of the flavours had married together and mellowed. We think the result is absolutely delicious!

Bottle from LaBodega, dark bourbon colored beer, cream colored head dissapeared. Aroma is malt, smoke, caramel and rum. Taste is caramel, vanilla, malt, smoke, hintvof rum and dried fruit. Palate is medium, carbonation subdued. Nice balance on this, it’s subtle, rich and drinkable.

Dégustée dans un verre 3 loups,belle robe brune aux reflets rubis, surmontée d’une mousse blanc cassé avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de diverses épices,cannelle,badiane....avec des notes boisées et de vieil alcool.La bouche est à l’image du nez ,nous laissant en finale sur le goût du rhum Une bière agréable à boire mais un peu trop épicée sans beaucoup de caractère!14,5/20.

appiantiqua (182) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 24, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre Les 3 Loups. Température de début 6 à 7°. Très belle robe brun sombre surmontée d’une magnifique mousse blanc cassé de persistance moyenne; carbonatation intense. Nez agréable, boisé et évoquant un vieil alcool; des arômes maltés font également leur apparition. Le goût est dominé par des saveurs tourbées et herbeuses avec un très léger penchant vers la douceur. La finale est brève et manque un peu d’épaisseur tout en restant relativement plaisante. 14,5/20

Vells (1833) - Rīga, LATVIA - JUN 23, 2017
Quite interesting. Maltiness with some caramel, some rum, coffee, feels bit artificial, but not too much to bother. Starts smooth with bit watery finish. Moderate sweet with light bitterness. Decent.
